Everyday

Leave a comment Standard

Everyday I show up.

I show up even when I don’t want to, because I believe in you.

Everyday I try to stay strong.

I grit my teeth and push through with a smile, and try to convince you it will all be worth while.

Everyday I put my feelings aside.

I walk through the door and leave my baggage at home, but sometimes it’s impossible to hide.

Everyday I talk you off the ledge.

I calm you down when you’re upset, and I pick up the pieces of the mess.

Everyday I give you hope.

I do my best to teach you new things, and encourage you to help your strengths grow.

Everyday I show you the way.

I teach you about kindness and responsibility, and hope that when you leave, these lessons stay.

Everyday I carry the burden.

I carry the weight of your problems around in my heart, and try to ease the hurting.

Everyday I pave the way.

I blaze a trail for you to follow, knowing the choice is yours at the end of the day.

Everyday I feel pride.

The days can be hard and the nights often long, but I’ve found my place in this passion of mine.

Everyday I have purpose.

I know in my heart I’m where I should be, despite the toll it sometimes takes on me.
